Day 07 → Someone who has made your life worth living.

There are a few people who have made my life wonderful. It is going to be the old cliche, I’m afraid. There are three people that stand out for me.

My grandfather: He raised me with strong beliefs and nurtured an interest in the things around me. Got me to look at the world around me with different eyes and cultivated a love of reading in me. Even though we have very different taste in books (he prefers biographies and non-fiction, where I prefer fiction and fantasy) this has enriched my life to a great extent. He has been a role model, the only man in my life I could truly admire and strive to be like. I love you, Oupa.

Rudi: Rudi changed my life. More than most of my readers will know. He was the first boyfriend I ever had who was emotional and soppy with me. Who would talk baby talk to me if I felt like it. When we first met we fought like cat and dog on a daily basis. People thought we would never make it, our families included. Here we are almost ten years later. A small family of four (including the cat, she’s Rudi’s “other child”), happy as can be. Even though we have our moments and our ups and downs, I wouldn’t want it any other way.

Babyice: He is the apple of my eye. I love him muchly. Any parent out there will know what I mean. He drives me up the wall. He throws tantrums (yes, 9 month olds throw tantrums) and he is a naughty little shit, but I love him anyway. He cheers me up and makes my day. Every day.
